Pros

The company offers great salary and overall benefits including 200% match to 401K, Tution reimbursement and stock options with long term incentives. So you will feel financially good as long as you are employed by the company.

Cons

Poor leadership, No definite direction, every new executive wants to drive the company their own way without thinking about its employees and how it was done in past. Top executives seem to beleive strongly in the philosphy that their way is always the correct way. Sad to see the employees being laid off, who have spent over 10-15 years at the company specially during this hard economic times. Financial profits are given more value than core human values. I definitely regret my decision now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop making big decisions by flipping coins in closed board rooms and trying to drive things your own way in a blind directionless fashion. Profit is not everything in life, Employees are human beings and not robots, which you are allowed to turn on and off with a blink of eye.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Full medical coverage. Beautiful facilities and very nice people to work with. Management ensures that you're going in the direction you want to go.

    Cons

    Downsizing is resulting in entire sites to shut down. This leaves many employees with very little choice to relocate for some, or for others, to find themselves on the job market in tough times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has done a great job in keeping employees fulfilled with their positions. Keep up with the recognition awards, promotions, etc., and employees will be happy.
